The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPAQ), in collaboration with the Caveau FRUITS ET LÉGUMES located at 4501, route 117 in Sainte-Agathe -des- Monts, warns the population not to consume the product indicated in the table below if it has not been kept in the freezer at all times since the time of purchase. Indeed, the product label does not include the information necessary for its safe consumption, namely the statement “Keep frozen until use” which is required.

Product name


Affected batch



Units sold until May 17, 2022

The product that is the subject of this warning was offered for sale until May 17, 2022 inclusive, only at the establishment designated above. It was packaged in a transparent bag with a gold bottom and sold frozen. The product label includes, in addition to its name, the mention “LE CAVEAU”.

The operator is voluntarily recalling the product in question. It has agreed with MAPAQ to issue this warning as a precautionary measure. People who have this product in their possession and have not kept it in the freezer at all times since the time of purchase are advised not to consume it. They must either return it to the establishment where they bought it or throw it away. Even if the affected product shows no signs of tampering or suspicious odors, its consumption may represent a health risk. However, no case of disease associated with the consumption of this food has been reported to MAPAQ to date.
